Sydney FC vs Shanghai SIPG Predictions and Betting Tips



Action in Group H of the Asia Champions League goes on this Thursday as Sydney FC and Shanghai SIPG go head-to-head. The Shanghai-based side will be looking to get to a winning start in this coveted continental cup. Sydney FC, on the other hand, is still in search of their first win of the tournament. Which side gets maximum points in this highly-anticipated encounter?

Both sides were against each other in last year's Asia Champions League. Although we didn't see any winner in that particular doubleheader, we were extremely entertained with 10 goals scored across both games.

Important game for both outfits

Sydney FC is still in search of their first win of the group stage having faced off with Yokohama and Jeonbuk. With just one point from a possible six games, things will need to start turning around from this Thursday if they're to avoid a third straight group-stage exit. It is to be noted that Steve Corica and his troops will be fairly confident heading into this game. They have lost only once in 12 meetings against Chinese opposition. However, they haven't been great either, winning just three times. In their most recent game against Shanghai SIPG in the AFC Champions League, they played out a 2-2 draw at home to Jeonbuk. The away side left it late to secure a point via Kyo-won Han's 89th-minute leveller.

Shanghai SIPG go into this game off the back of a disappointing CSL playoffs performance. Having topped Group B in the regular league season, they were eliminated by the eventual champions by a 3-2 aggregate scoreline. As such, their supporters will certainly hope they still aren't pondering upon that loss as they kick off their AFC Champions League campaign.

Sydney FC vs Shanghai SIPG Prediction: 1-1

The onus will be on Sydney FC as they head into this game without a win in the first two. Shanghai SIPG, on the other hand, is heading into this game looking to get back to winning ways following a semifinal and a 3rd place loss in the CSL playoffs. As such, we don't see a clear winner heading into this game.
